Yesterday we reported on our IDC candidates spotting a whale shark on while diving Saturday in the Tunku Abdul Rahman Park during the first in-water day of the IDC.
Turns out Fabien had a camera with him and manage to capture the video footage above of the whale shark.
Kota Kinabala, which sits on west coast of Sabah on the northern tip of Borneo, is known to be on the migratory path of whale sharks.
Their visits have been spaced at roughly 2-year intervals, with irregular sightings.
This year we knew something special was coming, however, when first rumours persisted about whale shark sightings, and then one of our instructors, Wellson, had a whale shark encounter on a dive early in January already.
And if we got to see whale sharks, we can’t imagine it happening at a nicer time than when all our Instructor Development Course candidates are in the water diving.
